There is an extension to the nntp Protocol called XBatch. XBatch
lets you tunnel binary data through a nntp connection. The batches
will be put in a separate directory on the receiving host, where they
can then be fed into rnews.
Before trying xbatch make sure, that you can get news via nntp!!!
Inn 1.5 has xbatch built in, so you can just read the innxbatch(8)
You can check that a server accepts xbatch (from a host which is in
132 % telnet your.news.host.pilhuhn.de nntp xbatch 3 <-- you type 339 result code abc <-- you type 239 successfully accepted------------------------------
